- Apple’s long-rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro is coming in October, according to supply chain sources cited by the Economic Daily News (EDN) via MacRumors.
- The EDN report says the 16-inch MacBook will feature a 3,072 x 1,920 resolution made by LG.
- This is noteworthy because it backs up an earlier report from IHS Markit, which also claimed the display would be a product of LG’s factory.
- However, the report from IHS Markit predicted a September launch date for the laptop, while EDN pegs it for an October launch.
- The 16-inch laptop is expected to replace Apple’s current 15-inch MacBook Pro, or at least sit alongside it as a new high-end choice.
- It is rumored to come with an all-new design that has a similar footprint to Apple’s 15-inch laptop but with thinner bezels, thus allowing for a larger screen.
- This would also explain why EDN’s report makes no mention of the 15-inch MacBook Pro, yet also expects the 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air to be refreshed.
- With the 12-inch MacBook ditched for good and the 16-inch MacBook Pro set to replace the 15-inch variant, these three MacBooks would represent Apple’s complete laptop lineup.
